It doesn’t get much more supernatural than Supernatural. Jensen Ackles and Jared Padalecki star in the pop culture behemoth television series that truly epitomizes its genre. In the series, the Winchester brothers follow their birthright to fight demons, monsters, and other creatures.

Supernatural premiered on The WB in 2005 and aired one season on the network before airing the remaining 14 seasons of its run on The CW. The series produced a whopping 327 episodes, which is a Netflix binge-watch that will keep you busy for at least a few months.


Even though Lucifer came to an end in 2021 after six seasons, which included a resurrection thanks to Netflix, it’s still among the most adored shows on the streaming service. Nothing will ever come between Lucifans and their Devil that they love so much.

The Netflix series is based on the DC Comics character Lucifer Morningstar, played to perfection by Tom Ellis, and finds him in Los Angeles as a nightclub owner and a consultant to the police department. All 93 episodes are full of angels and demons and devils you don’t want to miss!

Warrior Nun Season 2 - Netflix shows - Dead to Me season 3

Warrior Nun

Although each of the series on this list are super popular with massive fandoms who have been riding behind them for years, Warrior Nun might be the one worth adding to your watch list and discovering for the first time if you haven’t yet watched.

Based on the comic book character of the same name, Warrior Nun stars Alba Baptista as Ava Silva, who suddenly inherits supernatural powers that allows her to become a member of the ancient Order of the Cruciform Sword to fight demons. The long-awaited second season premieres on Nov. 10 on Netflix.

Stranger Things

There’s no doubt that Stranger Things is the ultimate supernatural show on Netflix. The series has been a staple since its premiere on the streaming service in July 2016, and the release of its super-sized fourth season in summer 2022 proved that it’s an unbeatable classic.

While you can watch any season of Stranger Things for an incredible dose of larger-than-life supernatural twists and turns, for Halloween, definitely give season 2 a rewatch. More than likely, though, we’re all watching the episode fourth season for the millionth time leading up to season 5.


In its ambitious and game-changing sixth season, Riverdale finally leaned fully into the supernatural. The CW series saw the central gang acquire superpowers from an alternate universe in an extensive story arc that found Cheryl harnessing her full witch potential.

Riverdale had previously flirted with the supernatural throughout its run, and the series will surely tackle more supernatural territory in its seventh and final season. After all, the gang needs to return back to the present from the ’50s!
